Pluripotency transcription factors and Tet1/2 maintain Brd4-independent stem cell identity

NATURE CELL BIOLOGY 2018 MAY; 20(5):565-574
A robust network of transcription factors and an open chromatin landscape are hallmarks of the naive pluripotent state. Recently, the acetyllysine reader Brd4 has been implicated in stem cell maintenance, but the relative contribution of Brd4 to pluripotency remains unclear. Here, we show that Brd4 is dispensable for self-renewal and pluripotency of embryonic stem cells (ESCs). When maintained in their ground state, ESCs retain transcription factor binding and chromatin accessibility independent of Brd4 function or expression. In metastable ESCs, Brd4 independence can be achieved by increased expression of pluripotency transcription factors, including STAT3, Nanog or Klf4, so long as the DNA methylcytosine oxidases Tet1 and Tet2 are present. These data reveal that Brd4 is not essential for ESC self-renewal. Rather, the levels of pluripotency transcription factor abundance and Tet1/2 function determine the extent to which bromodomain recognition of protein acetylation contributes to the maintenance of gene expression and cell identity.

Anti-HIV-1 B cell responses are dependent on B cell precursor frequency and antigen-binding affinity

The discovery that humans can produce potent broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) to several different epitopes on the HIV-1 spike has reinvigorated efforts to develop an antibody-based HIV-1 vaccine. Antibody cloning from single cells revealed that nearly all bNAbs show unusual features that could help explain why it has not been possible to elicit them by traditional vaccination and instead would require a sequence of different immunogens. This idea is supported by experiments with genetically modified immunoglobulin (Ig) knock-in mice. Sequential immunization with a series of specifically designed immunogens was required to shepherd the development of bNAbs. However, knock-in mice contain superphysiologic numbers of bNAb precursor-expressing B cells, and therefore how these results can be translated to a more physiologic setting remains to be determined. Here we make use of adoptive transfer experiments using knock-in B cells that carry a synthetic intermediate in the pathway to anti-HIV-1 bNAb development to examine how the relationship between B cell receptor affinity and precursor frequency affects germinal center (GC) B cell recruitment and clonal expansion. Immunization with soluble HIV-1 antigens can recruit bNAb precursor B cells to the GC when there are as few as 10 such cells per mouse. However, at low precursor frequencies, the extent of clonal expansion is directly proportional to the affinity of the antigen for the B cell receptor, and recruitment to GCs is variable and dependent on recirculation.

In Vivo PET Assay of Tumor Glutamine Flux and Metabolism: In-Human Trial of F-18-(2S,4R)-4-Fluoroglutamine

RADIOLOGY 2018 MAY; 287(2):667-675
Purpose: To assess the clinical safety, pharmacokinetics, and tumor imaging characteristics of fluorine 18-(2S,4R)-4-fluoroglutamine (FGln), a glutamine analog radiologic imaging agent. Materials and Methods: This study was approved by the institutional review board and conducted under a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved Investigational New Drug application in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. All patients provided written informed consent. Between January 2013 and October 2016, 25 adult patients with cancer received an intravenous bolus of FGln tracer (mean, 244 MBq +/- 118, <100 mu g) followed by positron emission tomography (PET) and blood radioassays. Patient data were summarized with descriptive statistics. FGln biodistribution and plasma amino acid levels in nonfasting patients (n = 13) were compared with those from patients who fasted at least 8 hours before injection (n = 12) by using nonparametric one-way analysis of variance with Bonferroni correction. Tumor FGln avidity versus fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) avidity in patients with paired PET scans (n = 15) was evaluated with the Fisher exact test. P < .05 was considered indicative of a statistically significant difference. Results: FGln PET depicted tumors of different cancer types (breast, pancreas, renal, neuroendocrine, lung, colon, lymphoma, bile duct, or glioma) in 17 of the 25 patients, predominantly clinically aggressive tumors with genetic mutations implicated in abnormal glutamine metabolism. Acute fasting had no significant effect on FGln biodistribution and plasma amino acid levels. FGln-avid tumors were uniformly FDG-avid but not vice versa (P = .07). Patients experienced no adverse effects. Conclusion: Preliminary human FGln PET trial results provide clinical validation of abnormal glutamine metabolism as a potential tumor biomarker for targeted radiotracer imaging in several different cancer types.

Flares in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis after Total Hip and Total Knee Arthroplasty: Rates, Characteristics, and Risk Factors

JOURNAL OF RHEUMATOLOGY 2018 MAY 1; 45(5):604-611
Objective. Rates of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA) remain high for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), who are at risk of flaring after surgery. We aimed to describe rates, characteristics, and risk factors of RA flare within 6 weeks of THA and TKA. Methods. Patients with RA were recruited prior to elective THA and TKA surgery and prospectively followed. Clinicians evaluated RA clinical characteristics 0-2 weeks before and 6 weeks after surgery. Patients answered questions regarding disease activity including self-reported joint counts and flare status weekly for 6 weeks. Per standard of care, biologics were stopped before surgery, while glucocorticoids and methotrexate (MTX) were typically continued. Multivariable logistic regression was used to identify baseline characteristics associated with postsurgical RA flares. Results. Of 120 patients, the mean age was 62 years and the median RA duration 14.8 years. Ninety-eight (82%) met 2010/1987 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism criteria, 53 (44%) underwent THA (and the rest TKA), and 61 (51%) were taking biologics. By 6 weeks, 75 (63%) had flared. At baseline, flarers had significantly higher disease activity (as measured by the 28-joint Disease Activity Score), erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein, and pain. Numerically more flarers used biologics, but stopping biologics did not predict flares, and continuing MTX was not protective. A higher baseline disease activity predicted flaring by 6 weeks (OR 2.12, p = 0.02). Conclusion. Flares are frequent in patients with RA undergoing arthroplasty. Higher baseline disease activity significantly increases the risk. Although more patients stopping biologics flared, this did not independently predict flaring. The effect of early postsurgery flares requires further study.

Identification of Three Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Subtypes by Machine Learning Integration of Synovial Histologic Features and RNA Sequencing Data

ARTHRITIS & RHEUMATOLOGY 2018 MAY; 70(5):690-701
Objective. In this study, we sought to refine histologic scoring of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) synovial tissue by training with gene expression data and machine learning. Methods. Twenty histologic features were assessed in 129 synovial tissue samples (n = 123 RA patients and n = 6 osteoarthritis [OA] patients). Consensus clustering was performed on gene expression data from a subset of 45 synovial samples. Support vector machine learning was used to predict gene expression subtypes, using histologic data as the input. Corresponding clinical data were compared across subtypes. Results. Consensus clustering of gene expression data revealed 3 distinct synovial subtypes, including a high inflammatory subtype characterized by extensive infiltration of leukocytes, a low inflammatory subtype characterized by enrichment in pathways including transforming growth factor , glycoproteins, and neuronal genes, and a mixed subtype. Machine learning applied to histologic features, with gene expression subtypes serving as labels, generated an algorithm for the scoring of histologic features. Patients with the high inflammatory synovial subtype exhibited higher levels of markers of systemic inflammation and autoantibodies. C-reactive protein (CRP) levels were significantly correlated with the severity of pain in the high inflammatory subgroup but not in the others. Conclusion. Gene expression analysis of RA and OA synovial tissue revealed 3 distinct synovial subtypes. These labels were used to generate a histologic scoring algorithm in which the histologic scores were found to be associated with parameters of systemic inflammation, including the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, CRP level, and autoantibody levels. Comparison of gene expression patterns to clinical features revealed a potentially clinically important distinction. mechanisms of pain may differ in patients with different synovial subtypes.

Efficacy and safety of fezakinumab (an IL-22 monoclonal antibody) in adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis inadequately controlled by conventional treatments: A randomized, double-blind, phase 2a trial

Background: Interleukin 22 promotes epidermal hyperplasia and inhibits skin barrier function. Objective: Evaluate interleukin 22 blockade in adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD). Methods: We performed a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with intravenous fezakinumab monotherapy every 2 weeks for 10 weeks, with follow-up assessments until 20 weeks. The change in SCOring AD (SCORAD) score from baseline at 12 weeks served as the primary end point. Results: At 12 weeks, the mean declines in SCORAD for the entire study population were 13.8 +/- 2.7 in the fezakinumab arm and 8.0 +/- 3.1 in the placebo arm (P=.134). In the severe AD patient subset (with a baseline SCORAD of >= 50), SCORAD decline was significantly stronger in the drug-treated patients than placebo-treated patients at 12 weeks (21.6 +/- 3.8 vs 9.6 +/- 4.2, P=.029) and 20 weeks (27.4 +/- 3.9 vs 11.5 +/- 5.1, P=.010). At 12 weeks, improvements in body surface area involvement in the entire population were significantly stronger in the drug-treated than placebo-treated patients (12.4% +/- 2.4 vs 6.2% +/- 2.7; P=.009), and in the severe AD subset, the decline in Investigator Global Assessment was significantly higher in the drug-treated than placebo-treated patients (0.7 +/- 0.2 vs 0.3 +/- 0.1; P=.034). All scores showed progressive improvements after last dosing (10 weeks) until end of study (20 weeks). Common adverse events were upper respiratory tract infections. Limitations: The limited sample size and lack of assessment with Eczema Area and Severity Index and a pruritus numerical rating scale were limiting factors. Significance was primarily obtained in severe AD. Conclusion: Fezakinumab was well-tolerated, with sustained clinical improvements after last drug dosing.

Intracranial metastasis in fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma

PEDIATRIC BLOOD & CANCER 2018 APR; 65(4):? Article e26919
Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FLHCC) is a rare liver malignancy in adolescents and young adults. Surgery is the mainstay of therapy for primary and metastatic disease. Most patients relapse, with development of both local and distant metastases. Brain metastases from solid tumors are rare in the pediatric and young adult population. Here, we document three patients with brain metastases from FLHCC, confirmed by histology and molecular characterization of the chimeric fusion DNAJB1-PRKACA, each necessitating neurosurgical intervention. These observations highlight the ability of FLHCC to metastasize to the brain and suggest the need for surveillance neuroimaging for patients with advanced-stage disease.

Pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysms due to median arcuate ligament syndrome: what we need to know

Median arcuate ligament (MAL) syndrome is a rare and poorly known cause of abdominal pain. MAL narrows the celiac artery (CA), resulting in true distal aneurysms, including pancreaticoduodenal artery (PDA) aneurysms. These aneurysms often have an aggressive course, as rupture can result in hemorrhagic shock. CT scan appears to be the most effective investigation for the diagnosis of PDA aneurysms and may reveal possible celiac artery compression. In this series, we describe four cases of PDA aneurysm: two ruptured aneurysms treated by an endovascular procedure and two non-ruptured aneurysms treated by surgery. It was also decided to treat CA stenosis in three of the four patients based on the clinical presentation (ruptured or non-ruptured) and the presence of peripancreatic collateral vessels on imaging. This strategy contrasts with the approach commonly reported in the literature, in which MAL section is mandatory due to the high risk of ischemia rather than the potential risk of recurrent aneurysm. Medical teams should be aware of this disease to improve diagnosis and patient management.

Search for pair production of vector-like quarks in the bW(b)over-barW channel from proton-proton collisions at root s=13TeV

PHYSICS LETTERS B 2018 APR 10; 779(?):82-106
A search is presented for the production of vector-like quark pairs, T (T) over bar or Y (Y) over bar, with electric charge of 2/3(T) or -4/3(Y), in proton-proton collisions at root s= 13 TeV. The data were collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2016 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.8 fb(-1). The T and Y quarks are assumed to decay exclusively to a W boson and a b quark. The search is based on events with a single isolated electron or muon, large missing transverse momentum, and at least four jets with large transverse momenta. In the search, a kinematic reconstruction of the final state observables is performed, which would permit a signal to be detected as a narrow mass peak (approximate to 7% resolution). The observed number of events is consistent with the standard model prediction. Assuming strong pair production of the vector-like quarks and a 100% branching fraction to bW, a lower limit of 1295 GeV at 95% confidence level is set on the T and Y quark masses.
